Love will tear us apart

The damn seasonal flu (thank God not the swine flu) has kept me indoors for the past week, and since an old pyjama has not been the best outfit material for a fashion blog, I've kept it quiet here as well. There is really nothing more annoying than feeling like crap, looking like a Peruvian druglord due to all the nose blowing, and coughing like you've smoked cigarettes since the merry 1950's ending up keeping yourself and your partner up at night. Finally there are some signs of recovery, although I can't leave my place without my tissues and the nasal spray (how attractive), and my voice still gets lost in the evenings.

So, here I am barely up again, wearing something cozy and something quite Alexander Wangish with my latest purchases. I picked up all the arm candy from Lindex after receiving their press release, and falling in love with all the Givenchy- est que pieces they got going on this fall. I also found some tye dye leggings and a very Edie Sedgwick-like knitted vest, but more about those later. The bum beanie is quite new too; I was literally forced to get it because if you like bangs like I do, well, let's just say that the autumn wind does not agree with you most of the time. The corduroy pants are a second hand find for one Euro and the t-shirt I purchased when I was in Stockholm back in June.

Speaking of the t-shirt, I must confess something right here and right now: I'm not the biggest fan of these statement t-shirts with huge text over the chest (except maybe those "Frankie says relax" ones, due to their nostalgic value), especially when they say something tacky like "I went to Ibiza and all I got was this lousy t-shirt". You might wonder what made me change my mind with this t-shirt acquired from Weekday; well, with a text you can barely even see and with lyrics of one of my favorite Joy Division tracks, it was the perfect statement shirt of all times. So here, today, it also ends up being the perfect choice for this outfit.

Why you look always so arrogant in your pictures?:( You should smile sometimes:)) True fashion-girl can smile too without losing her credence or what you think? You're very beautiful girl but please smile even in one picture!^^

i wish i looked half as gorgeous and stylish as you do when i'm ill. instead, my lips seem to explode, my face gets covered in spots and my eyes get huge bags under them =/
i'm not fond of statement t-shirts either, but joy division was pure genious, and that line is epic!

I have to agree with Cattt. Do smile :)

Cattt: I don't smile in photos because my cheeks are so ridiculously big that I will end up looking like a round cookie if I do. Everytime I've tried it either comes out as a little smirk or I look so stupid that I can't publish such images. I envy those who can smile without looking ridiculous! If you look at my post where I'm wearing the Rick Owens dress, there is one pic where I try to smile a bit. :D

Ines: Oh you should see me without any makeup, in my PJs and my hair all messy. I tried to tidy up a bit for the pictures, that's why I look half decent in these pictures. :D Joy Division rocks!

Anonymous: Heh, see myy explanation above. The day I get a good picture with a smile, I will promise to post it!

Statement -paidathan ovat ihanan kliseisiä :) Odotellaan pari vuotta niin ehkäpä niillä kaameilla Hello Boys- ja 99% Angel -teksteilläkin alkaa jo olla retroarvoa... :)

Btw. mahtavat boot strapsit! Itse tein lopulta DIY-meiningillä. Myös leggarit ovat hienot.

CTRL had t-shirts and hoodies printed with the same Joy Division title few years back. I have one myself to proof it. :)

Sanni: Kyllä, kyllä ihan paras biisi ja bändi!

Tramp like me: I hope not! :D DIY-versiona kuulostaa erityisen viileiltä!:)

Maissi: I think it's a very widely used line heh. But good to know. :)

Juliet: Great idea, they definitely do cheer a fashion lover up!:)

Anonymous: Ummm..hello! Check this shizzle out: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/F2008RTW-AWANG

Styledigger: Thanks! I can't believe they were ony one Euro! I've seen similar ones in actual stores (new ones) and they were charging like 20 Euros heheh..

Bianca and Isabella: Mine too!:)

Cleon dann: Ok enough with putting me down while advertising your rings. I'm gonna start deleting your comments soon, mister. Are you some adbot or what?

Hanna Persson: Me too! It's my favorite!:)

I am in love with your corduroy pants, and as statement t-shirts go, yours is definitely a keeper. I hope you feel better soon!

Todella viileä kokonaisuus :)
Olen itse katsellut tuota paitaa Mintun putiikista. Osaisitko neuvoa koon valitsemisessa? Mikä koko itselläsi on? Itse en ole yhtä siro kuin sinä, joten taidan ottaa suosiolla yhden koon isomman.

Rakastan tuota rannekoru yhdistelmää:)))) JA muutebkin sulla on usein ihania koruja. Ne hopeen väriset pikkusakset, jotka on riipuksen muodossa on ehdoton lemppari :P

Anna-Maria, dear! Kiitos avustasi teknisessä solmutilanteessa. Ja anteeksi, että häiriköin vielä näin ikävällä asialla! Mutta en löydä sieltä sammakkopaikasta paikkaa, josta kuvat ja tilin saa yksityiseksi niin, ettei kuvaa klikkaamalla suoraan siirry tilille. osaisitko auttaa? Kiitos jo etukäteen <3

Stellagee: I know, usually they are so gross but anything with Joy Division HAS to be cool. This t-shirt is so buttery soft, I totally recommend getting it (even if you wear it just as a night gown, which I've done too).

The Waves: Thank you! I feel a bit better now, thank you. This stupid flu lasted like 2 weeks, so I haven't felt like taking too many outfit pics. Sucks. :(

Linda Sofia: Kiitos kovasti!:) Niitit on minunkin mieleen. :)

Neiti E: Paita on über cooliuden lisäksi myös aivan ihanan pehmeä päällä! :) Mulla on tuosta koko XS, muistaakseni yleensä käyttämäni S-koko oli hiukka liian iso. Tuo kyllä venyy hiukan käytössä, mutta palautuu taas kuosiinsa pesussa. Suosittelen siis ottamaan omaa normikokoa yhtä pienemmän. :)

Dea: Kiitos kovasti! Keräilen koruja, mutta aika ei meinaa riittää käyttämään niitä kaikkia. :D Se Ann Demeulemeesterin saksikoru on kyllä ehdoton lemppari, se kun sopii melkein minkä vaan vaatekappaleen kanssa. Itseasiassa se koru on mustavalkoinen, mutta kiitos kuitenkin! ;)

Jenna: Ei haittaa "häiriköinti", kävin jo vastaamaan kysymykseesi omalla tontillasi. :) Kiva, että musta on hyöytä näissäkin merkeissä!

Hei, kehuit muistaakseni joskus (Tampereen) asematunnelin suutaria? Tekeekö hyvää jälkeä? :) Mitäköhän maksaa esim. talvinilkkureiden pohjan ja korkolappujen vaihto? Kiitos jos viitsit vastata! :)

Audeyssa: Welcome to Fashion Flux, it's nice to hear that you like my blog! :) I hope you'll like it in the future, too. :)

Anonymous: Juu, siellä minä käyn kaikki kenkäni korjauttamassa ja olen ollut tyytyväinen!:) Korkolappujen vaihto on siinä 6-7 Euron kieppeillä (nylonit) ja talvipohjat (eli puolipohjat, btw kannattaa muuten ottaa kumiset, kuten esim näissä mitkä tän postauksen kuvissa oleviin kenkiin on laitettu) about 10-15 Euroa. Korkolaput saa laitatettua ihan siinä odotellessa, mutta se puolipohjien liima kestää kuivua muutaman tunnin, joten niissä saattaa mennä seuraavaan päivään asti. :)
